Another low-cut dress in black and white. Backstage, Anya tells Tim that everything looks very easy. Tim agrees and thinks that the judges are going to be thrilled with the transformation in her collection. Anya says that she's very pleased with the collection and excited to be showing at Fashion Week. Wow, here's a sleeveless short suit of tan, with gold trim. It's belted and super low-cut, but so elegant. There's a long train and short shorts and I love it. Next is a low-cut romper with blue on the torso and green-blue shorts. The tan belt sends it over the top. Love it. Next is a fitted cocktail dress that is belted at the waist and has this Givenchy-like/cowl neckline. The fabric is striped and the inside of the neck is gold. Beautiful. Here's a loose halter dress in black and white that exposes much of the back. I love all of it. The show is over and her parents seem thrilled.
Afterwards, Love Hewitt says that Anya's was her fave collection. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, the Director of Fashion at Lincoln Center, agrees. She thought it was flowing and sexy. Jay McCarroll, Season 1's winner, says that, though he doesn't like his personality, he liked Josh's collection. Joanna Coles of Marie Claire feels that Josh is trying to say something. Betsey Johnson loved his color palette. Danielle from this season says that she was surprised by Kimberly's collection. Cindy De La Hoz, from The Book, loved Kimberly's choice of color. Cecilia, our dropout, says that she would wear most of the pieces that Kimberly made. Joanna thought that Viktor's work was "exquisite." Wow. That's huge. Corinne Bailey Rae, the lovely pop singer, says that she really liked the bondage aspect of Viktor's collection. She's so cute. Mila, the dark princess of Season 7, liked Viktor's collection. But there was no color-blocking. I don't understand. Nick Verreos, from Season 2 and (sorry) fresh from the local botox bodega, says lamely that it's a tough call and he's glad that he's not one of the judges. LAME!
Oh God, it's judging time. They're all on the runway and Heidi tells them that they are all very proud of them. They start with Kimberly, who says that she was trying to elevate the urban girl. Michael tells her that she listened to all of their recent critique, without losing herself. She's showing the pink dress and leather jacket. He likes it. What he didn't like the flowing dress with the pink skirt underneath. He felt that the skirt took away from it. She take the jacket off of her model and L'Wren thinks it's even cuter without it. Heidi's favorite was the ivory slacks and blouse! Mine too! They're still not crazy about her bubble skirt. Nina liked the adjustments that Kimberly made. She says that she has the ability to work with a rich fabric and make it easy and modern. She loved her finale dress.
